This is because you have made a separate partition for boot and you are 
only looking into the directory that is the mount point for this
partition. If you make 'mount <boot partition> /boot' you will see
the missing files appear.

Karl, this is nonsense, /boot/grub/ is no partition and it looks
like you are missing the point. He has used the installer to partition
his drive and he can expect that the installer will manage all this
things for him. 
Sorry to say Bob, currently I can't see what is going wrong, but
maybe after you have mounted the boot partition, you can see what
is the issue with grub.
